Challenge Monday

Hi Stamping Friends!!
If you've been around my blog for very long, you know that I LOVE stamping (and now scrapping!) challenges!  Color challenges.  Sketch challenges.  Theme challenges.  Doesn't matter what the challenge is, I'm always up for it!  Problem is, there never seems to be enough days in the week to post all my challenge cards.  And all the challenges begin and end on different days.  I get so confused of what needs to be posted by when, that I forget to post them on time!  So I decided that I will participate in as many challenges as I can over the week, and post all my challenge cards on Monday.  Today is the first official "Challenge Monday" blog post.  Some Mondays I may have only one card, some Mondays (like today) I may have more.  Each week will depend on time and general stamping mojo.  Here's what I've been challenged by this week:


GREETING CARD KIDS

Sketch Challenge:  INKSPIRATIONS CHALLENGES #53
Color Challenge:  COLOR LAB #24   Rose Red, Blushing Bride, Soft Suede
Theme Challenge:  PALS PAPER ARTS #76  Valentine's Day



ANIMAL STORIES

Sketch Challenge:  SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY
Color Challenge:  COLOR ROUND UP #17  Early Espresso, Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake
Theme Challenge:  SUO CHALLENGES #10  Baby Card



PARTY HEARTY

Sketch Challenge:  STAMPING 411 #186
Color Challenge:  STAMPING ROYALTY #54  Concord Crush, Marina Mist, Old Olive
Theme Challenge:  HAND STAMPED SENTIMENTS #50  Uses punches as your focus.
Inspiration Challenge:  STAMPIN' CELEBRATION #35 


If you think that's alot of challenges, it isn't even half of the ones I have links to!  Like I said, I LOVE challenges!  They really are the kick start to my creativity.  That and CASEing other fabulous stampers.  But that's what my Sunday Favorites blog posts are all about.  :)  I hope you've been inspired to try out a new stamping challenge this week!  I know they would appreciate more players.  It's so easy and super fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

This is a really great idea... I have the same problem. I do a lot of challenges but by the time I get around to photographing and uploading, it's too late. I might just do this. And all of these projects are fabulous!

Amy Fink said...
